Join us for our community-wide Earth Week worship service at 6 PM April 17.
From the pastor:
I remember mentioning Earth Day at a church in the 1980s -- and being accused of Earth worship. As years have passed, Earth Day has gone more mainstream. Even the most conservative Christians recognize the care of creation as a practical concern. For others of us, it is a spiritual matter -- in that God entrusted us with the care of His world. Toward that end, Triune will host "Creating a Culture of Care for the Earth, Our Common Home," a community-wide worship service at 6 PM April 17 in our sanctuary. Come worship with us and hear representatives of Upstate Forever, Mill Community Ministries, the Upstate Chapter of Black Lives Matter, and the David E. Shi Center for Sustainability at Furman University. These groups are demonstrating that we not only must but can make a difference in the life of our fragile planet. Come worship with us as we face the reality of a way of life that leads us to believe competition and greed are stronger than cooperation and sharing. Come and hear guest musician Marlo “Radiant” Hogue, songwriter and performer. Come and share food, ideas, questions, possibilities and dreams immediately after the service as we approach the 46th marking of Earth Day.
Blessings, Deb and service coordinator Susie Smith
